st albans family photography ideas
The shoot, which I was kind of nervous about because I’m not fond of photos, was such a blast!! Tori is amazing with children. She formed a bond with mine early on in the shoot and then was able to capture us during a great day out. It was so easy and fun. And the best part? The photos are so, so gorgeous. I’m having trouble picking which ones to get!

Ever feel like this?

You’d love heart-bursting photos of your amazing family but you’re worried that your kids won’t behave or your husband won’t cooperate on the day and the whole experience will be a stressful waste of time?

You are aware of how quickly time is passing but you keep coming back to the same concerns; you just feel like you’d like to lose a bit of weight first or get the house finished before having your photo shoot…

You’ve had a family shoot before. It was cheesy, it was awkward and you felt bummed out when you got the photos back. They weren’t really you and they weren’t how you wanted people to see you.

The good news is, I’m here to help!

A family photo session with me would be perfect for you if:

You want a outstanding experience with someone who will take care of your experience from start to finish

You appreciate beautifully finished wall art and want someone to do this for you

You appreciate your family exactly as they are and want photos to show off how fab they are!

A family photo session with me isn’t a good fit for you if:

You think iPhone snaps are "good enough" for your kids' future memories

You just want a digital image or two because you don't see the value in printing photos anyway

You think that posed photos say more about a family that showing the real connection between family members

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just write that love letter to your children and actually have real fun while taking the photos at the same time?

Go on, give the guide a go, you won’t regret it…!

We are absolutely thrilled with our family photos.  They were exactly what we wanted – a more relaxed and authentic feel for what family life is like (without the tantrums).  Tori has such a warm and approachable personality that works perfectly being a photographer.

I’m Tori and I’m here to help you tell the amazing story of your family!

I take heart-bursting photos for gorgeous families like yours. I’m a moth-hating, travel loving, metaphorical plate-spinning Mum who laughs at inappropriate things (but often doesn’t get jokes that others find funny). I also happen to be an award winning photographer based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. I travel all over the UK and further afield too (before the pandemic of course!).

When I’m not taking photos of amazing families and businesses, you’ll often find me eating my family’s chocolate while wearing a Comfy (which can only be described as a hoodie for a giant!).

I’m really passionate about helping parents write photo love letters for their children’s futures and getting Mums back in the photo.
